CALIFORNIA CUP DERBY QUOTES – SATURDAY JANUARY 30, 2016

first_imgCARLA GAINES, SMOKEY IMAGE, WINNER: “It feels wonderful! I was hoping (for a performance like that) but my quick conditioning had me a little worried. He had done everything so easily though so we decided to try this company first, going two turns before we jumped into deeper company. It looks like he handled two turns (well) right?!“I wasn’t quite sure that he was going to go to the lead. Sprinting, he broke a bit awkwardly and I just really didn’t want to get into a speed duel in his first time going two turns. When my other horse, Record Highs, went with him I was thinking, ‘come on guys! Back up’ but they all settled into a nice pace for him. He looked pretty relaxed after that first turn. That first turn took him a little bit by surprise, then he settled and was going pretty easily.“We might start on the first turn of the (Kentucky) Derby course and see what happens now. The San Felipe would be something we could look at.“Thinking about the Derby doesn’t make me uneasy, not at all! Hopefully, that’s the route we’ll take but, day-by-day.“My first impression was that he was just a very, very nice horse. You know what? Greg James and his assistant Mary did a tremendous job with this horse. Really, I just took over the reins. What can I say? They did all the preparation for me and I just want to thank them for that.When asked what impressed her the most about the race: “How easily he won and how nicely he relaxed on the front-end. And, that he did that so easily going a mile and a sixteenth off his layoff. I didn’t feel like I had him completely prepped.” VICTOR ESPINOZA, SMOKEY IMAGE, WINNER: “I was expecting that. I was expecting him to run a big race today. I worked him the other day and he worked unbelievably.“I was very impressed. For me, I don’t look at it like a Cal-bred or not. I just look at him and ask whether he has potential, whether he can have a future. The way he ran today, he showed me that he can go the distance and he showed me that he can run with any horse, Cal-bred or not.“He reminds me of California Chrome! The same color right? (laughs). I hope he’s as good as him. It’s hard to compare them at all. This is only the first time I have ridden him. I would like to see him in another race, then I will know more. The way he ran today was very impressive. Hopefully, I can get my next Kentucky Derby.” TRAINER QUOTES BETTY IRVIN, SMOKEY IMAGE, WINNER: “Wasn’t that something? I thought that was pretty great.” -30-center_img JOCKEY QUOTES NOTES: The winning owner is Betty Irvin of Pacific Palisades, campaigning as Irvin Racing Stable. DIANE IRVIN, SMOKEY IMAGE, WINNER: “We have it (Kentucky Derby May 7) on our minds. We’re getting there. We’ll evaluate the calendar and see what he’s ready for, but certainly his performance today indicated we might have something more special.”last_img read more

Missing south Delhi builder murdered for jewels and cash

first_imgThe decomposed body of a builder was recovered from a flat in Noida’s Sector-92 on Monday, two days after he went missing from his GK-II residence in south Delhi, the police said.Three persons have been arrested in connection with the murder of Vinod Kumar Gupta alias Bansal (55), the owner of BCC Developers, which has construction sites across Punjabi Bagh, Faridabad, Noida and Neemrana in Rajasthan.”Deepak Kumar, 25, and Sonu, both from Pratapgarh in Uttar Pradesh, were detained for questioning in Tilak Nagar area of west Delhi and Pratapgarh respectively on Sunday,” additional commissioner of police ( South- East) Ajay Chaudhary said. They were arrested on Monday.Rakesh, who bought the jewellery stolen from the builder, has also been arrested.The builder was reported missing by his family after he left his South Delhi home on Friday night, saying he had some urgent work in Sarita Vihar. But instead, he was lured to the Sector- 92 flat by Sonu, who had known Gupta for some years, the police said.Gupta’s phone was switched off a few hours later and his sedan was found abandoned near Pari Chowk in Greater Noida on Saturday.”During investigations, we found that Sonu, a native of Pratapgarh, had made around seven calls to the victim. We found that Sonu was missing from his house and posted a team to nab him,” Chaudhary said.The police lay in wait for Deepak at Tilak Nagar, where his sister-in-law stays.Chaudhary said that on grilling Deepak, he revealed the whereabouts of the body.advertisementThe police said that Sonu, a childhood friend of Deepak and Rakesh, had bragged to his friends that the wealthy builder used to carry loads of cash and jewellery on him. Deepak, a driver, and Sonu, currently unemployed, then enlisted the help of another friend called Dilip to rob Gupta.The three arrived in the Capital on Friday.”Sonu was in touch with Gupta throughout Friday and called him to Noida at night on the pretext of discussing some business,” the ACP said. The three lay in wait at the house and murdered Gupta when he resisted the robbery bid.After murdering Gupta, they looted his jewellery and cash, the police said. “They had planned to take his car but abandoned it out of fear of being caught,” Chaudhary added.Later, the police picked up Rakesh, but Dilip, who used to do menial jobs at home, is still on the run.However, a friend of the family said they suspected a prominent builder to be involved. ” We have named a few persons in the FIR, including a prominent builder but the police have not taken any action, since he is an influential person,” the friend, who declined to be named, said.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

Rafael Nadal blasts Kyrgios for ‘lack of respect’ after Acapulco defeat

first_img1 dead, 3 injured in Quezon road crash Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios celebrates his victory after beating Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal during their Mexico ATP 500 Open men’s single tennis match in Acapulco, Guerrero state, Mexico on February 27, 2019. (Photo by PEDRO PARDO / AFP)Rafael Nadal accused Nick Kyrgios of lacking respect “for the public, the opponent and himself” after a stormy defeat to the Australian firebrand at the Mexico Open.Kyrgios survived three match points to beat top-seeded Nadal 3-6, 7-6 (7/2), 7-6 (8/6) on Wednesday and reach the quarter-finals.ADVERTISEMENT “I’m different, Rafa’s different. He can focus on what he needs to do. He doesn’t know the journey I have been on, he doesn’t know anything about me,” said Kyrgios who famously stunned Nadal as a teenager at Wimbledon in 2014.“I am not going to listen at all. That’s the way I play. The way he plays is very slow between points.“I’ve got my game, he’s got his game. People are different, that’s the sport.”Nadal, playing his first tournament since falling to Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open final, had three chances to close out Wednesday’s match after taking a 6-3 lead in the third-set tiebreaker.Kyrgios saved the first with a leaping drop shot, and the second with a net-skimming volley.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES View comments P2.5 B shabu seized in Makati sting, Chinese national nabbed James Harden drops 58 points as Rockets rally to beat Heat However, 17-time major winner Nadal was furious with Kyrgios who at one stage complained of being sick, served underarm late in the match before cupping his ear to the boos of the crowd at the conclusion of the second round tie.“He is a player with huge talent and could be winning Grand Slams or fighting for the number one ranking,” said Nadal.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption charges“But he lacks respect for the public, the opponent and for himself.”Kyrgios, ranked 72 in the world, hit back at Nadal.

At 5:30 p.m. there will be a public lecture, which will focus on raising children with special needs; and measures implemented through the education system, that continue to benefit persons with disabilities. “We will be looking at what has been done over the past 50 years, and what will be done, going forward, for the benefit of the disabled community,” said Communications Consultant at the EFJ, Chris Benjamin. Some of the participants include, the Jamaica Association on Intellectual Disabilities (JAID), Combined Disabilities Association (CDA), Jamaica Down’s Syndrome Foundation (JDSF), Salvation Army School for the Blind (SASB), Jamaica Association for the Deaf (JAD), Jamaica Society for the Blind (JSB), Jamaica Council for Persons with Disabilities (JCPD), Maia Chung Autism and Disabilities Foundation (MCADF),Abilities Foundation, Special Olympics Jamaica (SOJ), and Genesis Academy.

Two charges against Mountie after man shot dead outside Surrey police station

first_imgVANCOUVER – Charges of aggravated assault and assault with a weapon have been laid against an RCMP officer after the fatal shooting in 2015 of a young man in Surrey, B.C.Const. Elizabeth Cucheran is scheduled to make her first appearance in provincial court on Jan. 9, British Columbia’s Prosecution Service said Tuesday.Hudson Brooks, 20, was shot outside the RCMP’s Surrey headquarters in the early hours of July 18, 2015, after police responded to reports of a man screaming, the Mounties have said.At the time, the RCMP said officers rushed outside and spotted the man, a struggle ensued and he was shot.Jennifer Brooks said she’s relieved charges have been laid in her son’s death.“It’s just absolutely so wonderful that there’s going to be some accountability here,” she said in an interview.The Independent Investigations Office, which investigates serious injuries or death involving police in British Columbia, said the shooting occurred as officers responded to reports of a possibly suicidal man. It sent a report to Crown counsel 14 months ago.The prosecution service said the investigation and charge assessment process took longer than expected, partly because of the complexities of the evidence and requirement for further investigation and analysis.“I can’t rule out other charges in the event that any other information was brought to light, but given the length of the investigation, I expect that there won’t be any more charges,” spokesman Dan McLaughlin said.“These were the charges that the Crown concluded met the charge assessment standard after reviewing all the available evidence.”Brooks described her son as the life of the party who would cook dinner for the family six times a week.“Hudson was amazing. He was really athletic. He was very, very funny. The class clown,” she said. “I want people to know that my son’s life mattered a great deal to many, many people.”Brooks is survived by his older brother, Beaudry, and younger siblings, Shayla and Riley.— Follow @gwomand on Twitter.last_img read more
